Summer news 

As Slanty Eyed Mama is getting ready to play tonight's Ambush Pride show in Buffalo, I'm looking forward to a lot of great shows this summer including this coming week in the Midwest and another week on the East Coast in August with Indigo Girls. I'll also be joining IG on a couple dates opening up for Jennifer Nettles (from Sugarland), which are particularly exciting! Check out the Calendar page here for all the dates and details.

The biggest news for me, however, is that Emily Saliers and I will be co-producing her solo record in the near future. We've already begun to work on material for it and it's shaping up to be really cool stuff. Looking forward to seeing how that develops!

Video fun 

I recently played a few shows with Indigo Girls and decided to make a fun little video from it. I didn't bring my camera along with me but luckily Sulli had hers. You can check out the video here:

IG will be announcing more summer dates with the band soon, so I hope to bring my camera along for the ride this time and capture more great moments!

New year, new shows 

January is one of my favorite months because it presents such a distinct dichotomy of ideas. It is at once a time of great hope, when we set to renew wishes and plans, as well as the heart of the winter when we in the Northeast are surrounded by darkness, bitter cold and snowfall. My birthday also comes in January, on the 4th, and this coming one will be extra special because I'll be heading down to play a show in Atlanta with the Indigo Girls at a benefit for 20 YEARS of Southerners On New Ground (SONG).

A few days later, we'll head to Washington state for three shows in Bellingham, Tacoma, and Edmonds. Check out the calendar page for more info.

Have a happy and healthy holiday season, and I hope to see you at these shows!

Fall's coming... 

I'm excited about a handful of great shows and fun stuff coming up. It's a pretty diverse line-up, so bear with me!

Four more shows added to my summer with the Indigo Girls. Can't let that 'Devil Went Down to Georgia' go after only a few shows! And Amy promises to get all the words right this time. ;)

Sept 5 - Grand Rapids, MI
Sept 6 - Madison, WI
Sept 7 - St. Paul, MN
Sept 8 - Bayfield, WI

Later in the month, I'm honored to be a part of an amazing show with Toshi Reagon and the absolutely stunning Word Rock Sword crew on Sept. 21 @ Le Poisson Rouge, NYC.

Then, Slanty Eyed Mama returns to Toronto on Oct. 5th at the Flying Beaver Pubaret. We LOVE playing up there!

See you on the road!

Slanty Eyed Mama: LIVE FROM GRAMERCY PARK with Lance Horne and Friends

The Players, 16 Gramercy Park South, New York, NY


The Live From Gramercy Park Series continues at the historic Players Club with Lance Horne and special guests on Monday, October 27th, 2014 at 8:30pm.

Live From Gramercy Park (LFGP) is an ongoing concert series produced by Christian Campbell, Michael Barra, and Lance Horne at The Players Club in New York City. Our aim is for this to be an "Inside The Actors Studio" for the international cabaret community.

More often than not unique brilliant evenings of cabaret happen once and are never seen again. We want to change that. We want to capture lightning in a bottle. We host and shoot the concerts, after which we produce a docu-style program to be shared with the world. We hope you can come participate and be a part of this great concert event. This is a place for lovers of arts to get to know artists intimately as they share yet another night with Lance Horne.

Doors open at 7:30pm and the concert will begin at 8:30pm. Runtime will be approximately 90 minutes.

Upcoming artists for October 27th 2014
